Jan Baan, founder of Baan Company
Dutch entrepreneur and venture capitalist Jan Baan will deliver this year’s keynote speech, ‘Genesis of UX in Hyderabad’. Baan brings an international perspective to the scene: he founded both Cordys and Baan Company, providers of ERP products, before moving into venture capitalism and investing in companies such as Top Tier and WebEx, both of which were eventually valued above $1billion. Top Tier was later sold to SAP, while WebEx was sold to Cisco, and Baan himself went on to write a book on his life as an entrepreneur.
